Spreading the awereness of aromanticism is important.
However making posts about platonic love and relationships and putting an asexual flag on it or tagging it as asexual is not helping. Asexuality and aromanticism are different concepts even though our communities might have close relations and aromantic asexuals exist.
Asexuality is not about romantic attraction likewise aromanticism isn’t about sexual attraction.
This is especially important for allosexual aromantics and alloromantic asexuals.

Can’t stop won’t stop
omg the cute
why are teenage girls so belittled? have you met a teenage girl??? they study harder than any boy i’ve ever met. they’re nicer than any boy or man i’ve ever met and their goals and dreams are no less valid so why are they treated like their brains are mushy lumps of goo that only think about boys 24/7???
I’m not like other girls!XD
I only have guy friends. I mean all girls do is start drama.
Oh my god, i hate sluts!
Other girls my age like to drink and party but i like to stay inside and read or watch netflix! I’m so weird.
All the girls in my school care about is makeup and shopping and all i care about is FOOD and VIDEO GAMES. lol sometimes i think i was born a guy.
This is everything.
Last Sunday, 17 trans women were arrested in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia were arrested at a local wedding simply for being trans. 16 of them were fined RM950 (296.55 USD) and sentenced to prison for 7 days. If they do not pay up the fine after 7 days they will be sentenced to prison for 6 months. One of the 17 was underage so she was let go, but she is now required to report to the Religious Department once a month for a year.
Justice for Sisters, a support and advocacy group for the rights of trans women in Malaysia, managed to secure a syariah-court lawyer to held these women appeal their sentences. The lawyer advised them to prepare RM1,500 (468.24 USD) per person as it is apparently a common practice for the court to ask for more money from detainees who appeal their sentences.
As their Malaysian ICs all say “male”, if imprisoned, they will be sent to men’s prison and treated as male prisoners - including shaved heads and lack of access to hormones.
Justice for Sisters is currently fundraising RM24,000 (7491.81 USD) and needs the money immediately. They are accepting PayPal donations at email@example.com . (I created the PayPal link - if that doesn’t work just manually put in firstname.lastname@example.org in the PayPal Send To address. Note the “PP.”!)
For more information, email them at email@example.com (note the lack of “pp.”).
From I AM YOU: Be A Trans Ally, a Malaysian social media campaign for trans* people and their supporters. Please pass the word!
EDIT: The first version of this had a typo - the original fine is actually RM950 not RM960 as I had written. The converted amount in USD is correct.
Please donate if you can
Shout out to Al Jazeera straight up showing a video of their reporters getting tear gassed during a live interview of the Ferguson police chief denying that they are tear gassing journalists.
Let us all take a moment of silence in commemoration of this moment
a moment of silence for Kirk having to play that moment off like ‘be cool Jim be cool’
a moment of silence because Kirk thought that his TOUCH TELEPATH reserved ‘Vulcan’s don’t like to engage in physical contact’ first officer was giving him a back rub oN THE BRIDGE ON DUTY and responded with ‘dig it in there Mr Spock’
A MOMENT OF S I L E N C E
i love old science fiction because it’s all like “IT’S THE DISTANT YEAR TWO THOUSAND AND THREE AND MAN IS EXPLORING THE DEEP CORNERS OF THE UNIVERSE” like god bless you old sci-fi you had such high hopes for us
WHY HAVE I NEVER SEEN THIS ON TUMBLR - I FEEL LIKE THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED.
I FEEL LIKE I HAVE BEEN DENIED A GREAT HONOR.
.let me tell you kids a story right now.
this GUY WENT FISHING AT THIS LAKE-OCEAN DROPOFF NEAR TAMPA. AND MY FATHER HAPPENED TO BE FISHING NEAR THE SAME PLACE. SO THIS KID HAD A TANGLED LINE AND MY DAD HELPED THE LITTLE SHIT, AND AFTERWARDS MY DAD GOES LIKE “YOU LOOK LIKE ONE OF THOSE HARRY POTTER KIDS, MY DAUGHTER HAS THIS BLONDE KID O N HER LAPTOP BACKGROUND, AND YOU LOOK LIKE HIM. AND THEN MY DAD SAYS THAT THIS LITTLE SHIT RIGHT HERE JUST CHUCKLES AND ASKS MY DAD TO CALL ME ON THE PH ONE. SO THATS HOW I TALKED TO TOM FELTON FOR ABOUT A MINUTE AND HE ASKED ME ABOUT SCHOOL AND HOW I LIKED THE BOOKS AND THE MOVIES AND HOW I DIED FOR LIKE A LIFETIME.
AND THEN MY DAD ASKED HIM “SO YOU ARE THE HARRY POTTER KID”. AND HES LIKE “YEAH” AND THATS HOW I DIED AND MY FATHER HAD A 10 MIN CONVERSATION WITH THIS FUCKER ABOUT FISHING.
